About the Historic Preservation Commission:

Historic preservation is vital to maintaining Jackson’s unique character and helps to insure quality construction that is compatible with existing neighborhood characteristics.  The Historic Preservation Ordinance first adopted in 1988 and amended as needed, guides new development within local historic districts and alterations to cultural, architectural, archeological and properties which are local or state landmarks or on the National Register of Historic Properties.  The local historic districts were identified and design restrictions were imposed after property owners within these areas agreed that this designation would be advantageous to your community. The Jackson Historic Preservation Commission was created to preserve, promote and develop the historical resources of the city and to advise the governing authorities as to the designation of historic districts, landmarks, and landmark sites.

The Commission meets once a month, on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:00 p.m. at 200 South President Street in downtown Jackson. This is a 9-member board, each serving 3-year terms. Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor, subject to confirmation by the City Council, and serve as unpaid volunteer municipal officials.

Additionally, the MDAH database is helpful for details and additional information for historic preservation.
